The Wilton Fish & Game Association will offer a basic hand gun training for adults 21 and older from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Wilton Fish & Game on U.S. Route 2 in Wilton. Participating students will undergo a four-hour training under the instruction of Sheriff Scott Nichols. The next class will be on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Each participant will receive a certificate of training from the Sheriff’s Office that can be used as proof of required training to obtain a concealed handgun permit. This certificate is recognized by the state because Sheriff Nichols is a certified firearms instructor through the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.

Students must bring their own unloaded hand gun in a holster with at least 50 rounds of ammunition. Also remember to bring a belt for the holster and hearing and eye protection. No magnums are allowed on the indoor range.

There is a 10 students per class limit so that there is adequate instruction per student. Participants are required to register and pay a

$20 fee to hold their spot. To register, call 778-3690 or email [email protected]
